A Great Opportunity to Restore the Republic

by
With the debacle in Afghanistan, the American people have been presented with one of the greatest opportunities in our lifetime — an opportunity to dismantle the national-security establishment and restore our founding system of a limited-government republic. Opportunities like this do not often present themselves.

Just think: There once existed a society in which there was: No income tax and no IRS. Americans were free to keep everything they earned and do whatever they wanted with their own money: save, spend, hoard, donate, or invest it. No government-mandated charity, including Social Security, farm subsidies, welfare, ...
